With everyone and their grandmother hyping up real estate investing over the last few years, chances are you have at least one buyer who wants to talk cap rates instead of how green the lawn is.

24. MLS Touch

Unlike a specific MLS app with a 2.3 rating on Apple’s App Store, MLS Touch has quietly taken over as the number one choice for boards across the country. One scroll through the app, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a joy to use. MLS Touch is more than just a pretty face, though. It has features Realtors have been clamoring for years, like neighborhood search, school search, comps, hot sheets, flood zone maps, and even a tool that lets you publish listings on Facebook. 

Sadly, MLS Touch is only sold to associations. So, if yours still uses that other app, you’re out of luck. We’re just happy that real estate technology seems to be finally coming out of the dark ages. Here’s hoping we get more cool apps like MLS Touch in 2024.

There are a lot of mortgage calculators out there, but this is by far the best of the ones we’ve tried. It’s quick, effortless to use, and has very minimal advertising.

It also supports fixed and adjustable-rate mortgages.

The best part is that it’s 100% free on iOS and Android devices. You can pay a few bucks to remove the ads, but they don’t impact the experience.

In our last update to this article, we couldn’t help but include REAL Messenger on our list. This real estate agent app seemed tailor-made for success: an exclusive club where buyers, sellers, and agents can network around high-end pocket listings. They even had celebrity real estate agent Fredrik Eklund running the show. So, how has it fared since our last update?

As of September 2023, REAL has reached over 350,000 downloads with access to more than 90% of listings in the United States. It seems to have hit its stride in its mission to “connect and empower the real estate community through technology.” In fact, REAL made waves in 2023 by announcing it was listed on NASDAQ with a valuation of $150 million. We’re excited to see the journey continue.

  • Pricing:


The 1060 App is another new social-media-meets-real-estate app to watch. Endorsed by real estate luminaries like Jason Oppenheim, Tomer Fridman, and the Sean McPeak team at SERHANT, 1060 takes the high-end pocket listing idea one step further than REAL Messenger. Like TikTok, the videos on the platform are short—under 60 seconds. Just enough to offer a sneak peek of a hot new property. 

It sounds like a TikTok clone for real estate, right? Not so fast. The app has one killer feature that TikTok lacks: property search. Buyers on the app can search for homes based on criteria like price, number of bedrooms, neighborhood, or even keywords. Pretty cool, right?

What Are Real Estate Apps?

Real estate apps are programs designed for phones and tablets that help real estate professionals and their clients generate leads, market homes, and buy and sell properties. While most real estate apps are mobile versions of websites designed for desktop computers, some, like Curb Hero, were designed specifically as apps for mobile devices.

Methodology: How We Chose the Best Real Estate Apps 

Even though our team has over 50 years of combined real estate experience, choosing the best apps wasn’t easy. To ensure we were using objective measures instead of just our opinions, we asked these questions to choose our picks for the best real estate apps for our readers:

  • Utility: Seek out apps that address practical challenges you’re already facing. You want to improve and streamline your workflows, not make your work harder. 
  • Pricing: Opt for apps that offer you value. While affordability is key, you should also consider the potential return on investment (ROI). If an app or feature upgrade is pricey but will boost your efficiency (or your leads), it might be worth the investment. 
  • Ease of use: Focus on choosing apps with user-friendly interfaces. We’ve done our best to find apps that have an intuitive design. Again, focus on your real estate tasks rather than learning a complex new app. 
  • Network effect: Prioritize apps widely used and recommended by the real estate community. After all, a larger user base usually means better support and a more stable app experience. 
  • Stability: Ensure the apps you rely on are stable and function smoothly. They should have minimal bugs, crashes, or technical issues. We’re looking to enhance your business—not disrupt it.

Our team regularly reviews and edits our articles to ensure we provide our readers with the most up-to-date information. We pride ourselves on an independent, editorial view. We do not accept money, services, or products in exchange for positive reviews or placement. Check out our complete methodology here.

Before there was a Sea Cliff neighborhood, there was One 25th. Featured in Wall Street Journal, this proud and welcoming Italianate-Victorian home stood alone on the bluffs of the area’s now-famous cliffs offering respite and privacy for the San Francisco family that built it. Grand scale and updated amenities in the home’s many inviting spaces bring modern livability even as the irrepressible charm of countless original Old World details calls to the past. Spectacular Golden Gate Bridge views light up many of the home’s rooms making this a truly one-of-a-kind property with stature and prominence rarely seen on the market.

The main level’s tall ceilings and ultra-wide towering doors, custom-built fireplaces with massive surrounds, and dark-wood parquet floors and trim bring an inviting elegance that makes any room the perfect place to relax with family or guests. The scale and volume of these spaces is something you don’t often find today and is evident the minute you step from the dramatic foyer into the living room, where large picture windows boasting jaw-dropping Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headland, and ocean views command your attention.

The 8,495-square-foot residence sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and offers an impossible-to-find presence and legacy in the heart of the enviable Sea Cliff neighborhood. The esteemed family that built this house in 1908 was inspired to do so after the 1906 earthquake and fire, finding the bluffs of Sea Cliff the perfect place to regroup and continue to write their prominent San Francisco legacy. The family’s daughter, Phoebe Hearst Brown, was only 4 years old when the home was built and remembers “nothing else there but sand dunes, lupine, and rabbits.”
